EGCT has a newly appointed board of trustees, representing a cross section of stakeholders. There are two representatives from EDC, two residents of the Garden City, two elected members (one from each of Dartford and Gravesham Borough Councils), a Community/Voluntary/Faith sector representative, and one from a Housing Association. Two local Business representatives will be added in the new year. All trustees are volunteers.
As EGCT’s operations expand, and it starts to manage the land and buildings, further community and stakeholder representatives will be invited to join a Guardianship Group. This group will be made up of people from schools, residents, businesses, VCF, house builders, local authorities etc… , and they will oversee and monitor the work of the EGCT by providing their advice to the board. This will be to ensure there is a good cross section of voices heard by the Board, to inform their decisions. More information on the Guardianship group will follow.
